A quadruple Oscar-winning black comedy is among the movies on TV tonight

It's one of the best films of the 21st century.

If you're not up to watching Ireland take on the Netherlands later, don't fret - there's tonnes of great movies on TV tonight to watch instead.


And hey, if you do decide to watch the match, then there's loads of flicks starting after the final whistle sounds. From goofy comedies to cold-blooded crime thrillers, there's some great options out there. Take a look below.

Police Academy - Comedy Central - 9pm

If you're looking to switch off your brain this evening then there's no better option among the movies on TV tonight than Police Academy, it's dumb but fun and you'll have a few laughs along the way.

The Iceman - FilmFour - 9pm


A slick and chilly biographical film about the murderous criminal Richard Kuklinski, played formidably by the excellent Michael Shannon. If you're looking for a (excuse the pun) cold-blooded crime flick tonight then this is your best option.

Mad Max - ITV4 - 9pm

No, not the Tom Hardy one. The original starring Mel Gibson is just as unhinged, if not more so, than Fury Road and spawned one of the most unique universes in film history.

Mission: Impossible III - E4 - 10pm


Arriving six years after probably the worst film in the franchise, MI:3 had a lot riding on its shoulders. Luckily Philip Seymour Hoffman saved the day as one of the best villains in the franchise, putting the films back on track and we got a very fun third entry.

Predators - ITV4 - 11pm

Arriving 20 years after Predator 2, this reboot of the franchise stars Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Walton Goggins, and Laurence Fishburne as a group of hunters taken to an alien planet where they become the prey.

Them That Follow - FilmFour - 11.10pm


Set in the backwoods of Appalachia, this 2019 crime thriller focuses on a Pentecostal community dealing with an unwanted relationship. It's got an incredible cast featuring the likes of Olivia Colman, Lewis Pullman and Kaitlyn Dever, but an only OK Rotten Tomatoes score of 67%. It's probably worth a watch.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - BBC One - 11.10pm

Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce play two drag queens alongside Terence Stamp as a trans woman, travelling across Australia on a bus named 'Priscilla' in this 1994 road comedy.

Parasite - Channel 4 - 12am

Parasite review


Our pick of the movies on TV tonight is arguably one of the best films of the 21st century. The black comedy thriller from Bong Joon-ho set the world alight upon its release in 2019, raking in FOUR Oscars, including Best Picture, becoming the first non English-language film to win the award.

Parasite follows a poor South Korean family who scheme to become employed by a wealthy family by infiltrating their household and posing as highly qualified individuals.

If you haven't seen it yet, there's absolutely no excuse not to stick it on tonight. If you have seen it, do yourself a favour and watch it again.

The Evil Dead - BBC Two - 12am

Gory, chaotic and extremely fun, the 1981 original that spawned a whole franchise is always worth a watch when it's on the box.
